    Re: Meguiar's Quik Tips Video - Consumer Headlight Restoration Kit

    I didn't know that it should be like that. But now it is clear I thought that I get just bad produced wool pad. For me, If I do head lights restoration, I shouldn't clean hood after that. For me it was annoying. This is only my point of view. My head light looks little bit better. Maybe I need to use grind paper before polishing next time. Thanks for explanation

    The lose fibers will lessen.
    When ever I get a new wool pad I clean them in my pad washer and run a spur on it.

    So wash that pad
    Also spin it on your drill.
    If you don't have a spur then you'll need to find a little hard tube, about 1" in diameter to fluff up the fibers and "spin" out the loose fibers, make sense?
    After it's clean you only have a few fibers on the hood next time you use it.

    Your headlights should look perfect.
    This kit has everything you need.
    Sand the heck out of it. That's your first attack at the UV coating and damaged plastic.
    Don't forget to tape off the area EXTREMELY WELL or you sand off your paint or rubber.
    After you've sanded it real well buff the heck out of it too.

    This is plastic and not paint so you have to be a little aggressive, and ALWAYS use caution when being aggressive.
    I redo headlights often and haven't really ran into any problems so it's relatively safe just use common sense.

    You still have UV/Plastic damage. You didn't remove all of it.
    Fair point. Probably just need to lay into it a bit more next time...

    I usually paint after compounding.
    PlastX will help get rid of the haze.

    This is the haze of which I speak. I used UC and foam light cutting pad(pretty sure) with rotary. Didn't spend a lot of time on them. Plus I was using a 6" pad. Think I will try the headlight kit and if nothing else, I will have the Plastx...thoughts?

    6" is way to big you need 3" pads.
    I don't know exactly what's going on with your lights. It doesn't look like haze but deterorated plastic.
    Get 3" pads, and polish it UNTIL it's perfect.
    I don't use PlastX

    Yeah, I know a 6" pad is too big. I was working the hood and just hit the headlights as an afterthought. Might get the headlight kit just to have the drillbit attachment and small pad and try being patient and working the UC/UP a little longer.

    If this is deteriorated plastic, will polishing it still work?
